Hiked it all the way up to Marjorie Lake and back. Bit much for a day hike but totally worth it! I like the trail for the varied terrain. On the other hand, it sees a lot of cattle grazing and seems to be the main route for ranchers to get their herds up into the Marjorie Lk area. Trail really needs some maintenance too - fallen logs across the trail everywhere and unless you're a bloodhound you'll lose the trail many, many times and be forced to get out your phone to find it. The best bits are all the way at the top of the drainage. The first mile or so below Marjorie Lake is a series of gorgeous open meadows giving way to a steep gorge that the rived crashes through, complete with scenic waterfalls.
